Arie Is Apparently Going To Appear In 'The Bachelorette' This Season & I'm Rolling My Eyes So Hard

With the premiere of Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette this week, there’s already been plenty of drama with the contestants. The biggest one of all has been Garrett Yrigoyen’s Insta scandal, as he reportedly followed accounts and liked posts that contained extremely derogatory and insulting content. And of course, there’s the on-show drama with several of the contestants not being there for the right reasons (*cough* Jordan *cough*). Otherwise, the guys seem pretty harmless, and I’m excited to see where this season goes.

However, I hear one former contestant is making an appearance, and I’m not happy about it at all. In fact, I’m kind of shocked that he would even dare show up after all he’s done to Becca. According to the queen herself, the one who shall not be named will be on the season for a simple conversation and nothing more.

 

Welp I meant to post this earlier but I was on a flight and just bad at this whole social media thing. BUT - Before you all join me in watching the beginning of my love story tonight, I want to take a second to give thanks. Thank you to everyone for all of the love, support and kind words that I’ve received over the past year. It fills my heart in places that I didn’t even know existed. I also want to ask that you keep an open heart in watching this all unfold. 28 guys came on this journey with me from all across the country and laid their hearts on the line for a chance at love. There are many different personalities, interests and perspectives, but every man deserves to feel the same support and openness that I’ve received over the past few months. It’s not an easy thing to do, to give up your life and put everything on display, especially in this social climate. But these men were brave enough to do that with me, and that’s something truly special. To the 28 of you who went through this crazy journey with me - thank you. You all added to my story in some way. You taught me about yourselves and even about myself along the way. I think it’s safe to say (one last time) that we did the damn thing together. I also want to thank the entire production team and crew. Each and every one of you is driven and kind, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without all of your hard work. It doesn’t go unnoticed, so thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thanks for reading this novel, I vow to never write this long of a post again. NOW LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!

“He will show up, yes, [and] have a conversation and you'll just have to see that unfold. [It] wasn't emotional, it was just two adults sitting down, wishing each other the best and talking through our experiences," Becca told Entertainment Tonight.

I’m sure that’s how the situation will appear on camera, but I’d love to know what was going on inside her head during the entire ordeal. Did he show up uninvited like her ex on the last season? Did she know about this meeting beforehand? Did she want it to happen, or was this Arie’s idea he cooked up with the producers? I guess we’ll just have to wait and find out.
